Okay, so maybe it's not that special, but it sure seemed neat. Out walking with a friend, we passed by the casino construction site, and as she was looking at the new building, I was looking at the older ones across the street. I wasn't even hunting for signs. Instead, I was looking for buildings to rehab. (Not that I do, it's just a game we play.) I stared at this one for a few minutes before the signs became apparent.
When I notice these signs, I usually have sunglasses on. And the sunglasses are usually polarized. Meaning, I can see them quite distinctly in person, and can't understand why the photos don't turn out as well. So, I've played with the light of the photo.
Is that place a legitimate restaurant? It looks... abandoned, yet, every now and then, there's a sign on the sidewalk, with the specials of the day. However, I've never, ever seen anyone go in, or come out, and no-one has ever mentioned eating there. (Shades of Sweeny Todd, maybe?)
Anyway, another faded sign, on Race, in the 900 block. Completely illegible.
